The Topic for today is: 2020 Mid-Year Review
Well, obviously things haven’t gone as planned. (17 races that I was planning to run by Jun 30, 2020 have been cancelled).
The year started with a painful foot. I continued to run on it and completed a few short races and two half marathons. Then I got rid of the pain but there have been no races since 😦
- Virtual Races
Yes, I have technically completed quite a few including three half marathons.
But none have I truly raced.
My goal for the year has always been 1000 miles. That means around 84 miles each month.
Jan – 83.8 miles
Feb – 76.7 miles
Mar – 91 miles
Apr – 89 miles
May – 86.5 miles
Jun – 82 miles
I have run 507 miles so far.
It seems that I am right on track as far as that goes.
- Training Plans
I have continued to run as if I were training for a half marathon. That means I run 3 short runs during the work week
and one Long Run of 10 miles on the weekend.
- Cross Training
Ummm.. I started the year with an occasional trip to the gym to ride the bike or use the machines (very occasional).
Then everything closed. I do not own any equipment.
So it’s been a lot of walking, a lot of hiking and a lot of weeding. I have also taken a yoga class every month (face to face and then through ZOOM).
Yes, my favorite thing to do.
NYC for a half marathon and then an awesome one in Bermuda (who knew how fun it would be and how it may be the last one of the year?) I had a race scheduled for my tennis trip to Naples, Fl but the trip got cancelled. I had another NYC trip planned for June but that race got cancelled.
Hopefully, my NH girls trip will happen in October – race or no race. Maybe I will even get to run in NYC before 2021.
- Blogger Meet-ups
Well, most of them have been virtual.
Gotta love ZOOM.
As I am sure every runner will agree, 2020 so far has not been a remarkable year. But if we are all healthy, we should not complain.
Things can only get better!!
